And even then, safety, including drivers not being able to cope with the forces on them was a big part of why ground effect cars were banned in the first place at the time, wasn’t it @simon999.
Nowadays that is […]
@simon999 Interesting suggestion.
@simon999 Good idea and sound point about FIA responsibility.
glenj commented on the post, Hamilton apologises after finishing nine places behind Russell 2 months ago
I think you are right. As much as I don’t like Lewis’ personality I do respect his driving. People will get on his back because he won a load of easy titles at a canter but he is definitely worthy of […]
@simon999 I agree its more revisionist PR friendly propaganda.
RB performance wasn’t anything to do with the Honda PU but their aggressive high rake aero design philosophy. Also being a “one car” team helps as […]
Tifoso1989 commented on the post, Correa "thinking of Anthoine" as he makes Formula 2 return in test 6 months, 1 week ago
I have always been very critical about Horner, Marko and the RBR camp in general. They whine and lobby so hard to get things done their way and they never refrain from denigrating attacking the […]
grapmg commented on the post, Did F1 race control make correct decision over last-lap restart? 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Hi @simon999 I wasn’t refering to regulations (I’m not a Lawyer). Trying to reconstruct or understand why the FIA/Masi made those decisions. Why was that first decision made to leave the cars in place ? Lack of […]
@simon999 again i disagree with “if they restarted with lapped cars in place max would still win” line .
Thats completely false, do you forget that under the restart Lewis was in 1st controlling the pack and with […]
@simon999 With all due respect, just to correct you it would be very unlikely max would win if the race restarted with only 1 lap to go and lapped cars in place as Lewis could tactically sprint early to start the […]
@simon999 that is for the CAS to decide, Daimler has got a a solid case and if the decision goes their way there would be no option but to ‘finish’ the race under yellow condition handing Lewis the […]
@simon999 I think the case will hinge on whether, legally, the safety car should have come in at the end of the following lap, as per the regulations.
I don’t think Mercedes have asserted that the lapped cars […]
@simon999 100% agree with this. The championship result shouldn’t be changed but what happened should never be allowed again. The only circumstance a race director should be allowed to circumvent the rules is […]
@simon999 I have to agree with you. I’ve been giving Masi the benefit of the doubt, but he’s made a real mess of this decision. He should have let all the lapped cars unlap themselves, or none. He seems to have […]
@simon999 And what if he came in and they did give 1 more lap to race? Then both drivers would’ve been on even footing, Hamilton probably would’ve won since he had pace, today…
Really, though, should’ve been […]
@simon999 Good point, had they informed the following car first, a collision would have been less likely. Regardless of the fact that the telemetry tells us Max unnecessarily hit the brakes on a section of […]
@simon999 0.2 mm, from what I heard.
Michael commented on the post, Hamilton "went in too hot" in Verstappen collision – Ricciardo 11 months, 2 weeks ago
@simon999 well, Horner is partly to blame. How long has Max been driving for him? Why can’t he get his driver to avoid rookie mistakes like this one? If Verstappen is so good, surely he can avoid that crash. […]
BasCB commented on the post, Hamilton believes he could have won with a two-stop strategy 1 year ago
I agree that they missed a beat with that one @simon999. Maybe they were waiting to see whether Verstappen would actually react to Bottas pitting (so that they would not give up the lead to Max?), must probably be […]
Summed up very well @simon999
